Tom Lagana (Adjunct/Jazz Guitar) participated in a performance of David Del Tredici's Final Alice on tenor banjo with the National Symphony Orchestra in May. It was the debut performance for the NSO and the first time in 20 years that the work was performed without any cuts. Leonard Slatkin was conducting. Professor Lagana also played at Wolftrap in May with the NSO, backing Eric Idle of Monty Python fame in his Not the Messiah. He played nylon string, steel string acoustic, twelve-string, and electric guitar in this performance.
